Interestingly, Novak Djokovic’s wife, Jelena Djokovic, wore a really special T-shirt when she came to support Nole during his match against Nishikori. On it, there was a caption- ‘I run with the wolf’.

A reporter also asked a question to Djokovic regarding this and he answered it during the post-match interview. However, Jelena didn’t understand it that time and later tweeted the video with the message.

“Awwww I didn’t hear him say this while on court at US Open. Thanks for the hearing impaired screen it helped me understand what was going on Novak Djokovic. I gotta run when you don’t really walk much hahhaahah. Love,” tweeted Jelena.

Djokovic has always been inspired by wolves and has a kid of wolf energy in his game. As a result, his fans often call him the wolf and his wife sarcastically commented that she is ready to run with him since he can’t really walk.
